I’m a designer, researcher, product developer in Portland, Oregon (and sometimes Mendocino County, California, and Oakland, California).  Working on multiple projects, including:

  • YIMBYwiki, an online collaborative platform for research and advocacy materials related to the YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard) movement, housing, and land use.
  • Houslets, research and prototyping of adaptable living spaces.
  • Village Collaborative – I coordinate this national network supporting tiny-house village projects for the unhoused.
  • New Starter Homes – project for a large-scale program of low-cost, pre-fab backyard cottages, for low-income Portland renters and homeowners.
  • I also do furniture assembly/installation, carpentry, & handyman work through TaskRabbit, you can hire me there for short-term work.
